What are Console Commands in Enter the Gungeon?
Console Commands are unique lines of codes that you can input into the Console Menu in Enter the Gungeon to instantly spawn weapons/items, spawn characters, or modify some key parameters in-game.
Unfortunately, these commands are not usable without Mod the Gungeon installed, and additional console commands can only be used with specific mods installed in-game.
With that in mind, make sure you have Mod the Gungeon installed and refer to the mod download page for any author notes on how to spawn specific items from the mod packs.
On the other hand, we have listed all the default Mod the Gungeon Console Commands available to you after you have installed the mod manager to your copy of Enter the Gungeon in the Commands List section below.
The Console Menu lets you type in mod-specific commands that will let you change various parameters in Enter the Gungeon.
Using the Console Menu is more akin to cheating than anything else, as Console Commands can give you loot through Console Commands that you would otherwise have to come across to acquire around the Gungeon.
If you’re an Enter the Gungeon veteran looking to spice up gameplay around the Gungeon, then Console Commands and, by extension, third-party mods, and help make Enter the Gungeon a more forgiving and enjoyable game.

Enter the Gungeon’s randomness and steep learning curve make it one of the most challenging games of its time. However, there’s a novelty in playing the same game in a different way each and every time, and that’s what makes Enter the Gungeon so special.
Still, nothing is stopping more casual players from installing the Mod the Gungeon mod manager to enable the use of Console Commands and third-party mods for Enter the Gungeon. Both of these can add a whole new dynamic to the otherwise strict and methodical gameplay of the non-modded game, which can bring some hilarious fun with the right Console Commands or mods.
